Beer in Northwest Goes Sustainable
as well as Sudsy
Craft brewing is an economic powerhouse in Oregon, generating nearly $3 billion in economic impact while providing direct employment to nearly 7,000 people across the state.
The Oregon brew industry is home to farmers, brewers and distributors who take real pride in sourcing, crafting and delivering their delicious product. And great beer means great business and jobs for coastal communities, the Willamette Valley, east of the Cascades and beyond in an industry on the rise.
But anything this great takes a lot of energy. And the brewing industry – like so many other Oregon industries that depend on land, air and water – is recognizing both the impacts of climate change on their products and supply chain, as well as the opportunities for instilling climate solutions into the way they run their business.
